Microwave Low Carb Chocolate Mini Cake

Submitted by: CYNDIDAVISUSA

Introduction

This can serve 2 [or 4 if you're being really good], but it is awesome and fairly low carb considering it really is cake. I was going to add a photo, but it got eaten too quick!

Ingredients

    Carbquik, 0.25 cup
    Egg, fresh, 1 large
    Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, 3 tsp
    Nutrasweet Equal packet, 3 packet
    Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened, 3 tbsp
    Vanilla Extract, .5 tsp
    Canola Oil, 1 tbsp
    Half and Half Cream, 3 tbsp
    Sugarfree Chocolates, .5 serving [optional]

Directions

Use a coffee mug that is microwavable [I use a big cappuccino one, like they used on the TV show, "Friend's". If you use regular sized mugs, split it between two mugs] or any microwaveable bowl with straight sides, so it can slide out. Remember, it will grow, so use an appropriate size vessel.

Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Spray the mug with cooking spray and pour in. Mix thoroughly and microwave for 4 minutes.

Let set for about a minute and turn upside down in a bowl or on a plate. It will slip right out…you can cut in half, [or quarters to feel more virtuous], drizzle with SF hot fudge topping, or you can put a spoonful of LC ice cream on top and indulge! Happy eating!

NOTES: First, you can use whatever sweetener you feel comfortable with. I do not use Equal or Splenda, but you can. I used Xylitol and Sugar Twin. I think it's the same diff as far as calories, etc.

Next, the original recipe calls for milk and more oil. I used half and half to decrease the carbs, and used less oil to make up for the increase in fat.

I use a few crushed up SF chocolates cuz I can't find SF chocolate chips. This is totally up to you, but SF Dove's chocolates, SF Andes mints, SF Reese's peanut butter cups or SF Turtles...totally awesome.
